Inspiring video #205. Invitation of Sri Chinmoy Seven minutes of World Peace Event at UN on 9/21/2023

Recent interview with Nilima about this Thursday’s Seven Minutes of World Peace by award winning Bangladeshi TV news anchor Dima Nefartity, followed by a Centre presentation at a program initiated by the New York City Mayor’s office called “Breaking Bread, Building Bonds.”

Seven Minutes of World Peace was inaugurated in 1984 by Sri Chinmoy: The Peace Meditation at the United Nations. Since its inception, numerous individuals and groups from around the world have participated, and letters and proclamations have been received from Heads of State, governors and mayors.

It is a soulful prelude to the United Nations Peace Bell Ceremony, which itself “rings in” the International Day of Peace.

#202. Spiritual Art Displayed on Largest LED Screen in Bulgaria

Sri Chinmoy’s traveling art exhibit in Bulgaria, featuring his Jharna-Kala (“fountain art”) is being displayed at Plovdid Plaza, the biggest and the most modern shopping center in Plovdiv. As part of the promotion of the gallery, a high tech video wall 16 meters (53.48 feet) high by 11 meters wide is playing a beautifully made 2 minute video of the artist. The total area is 172 square meters, reaching the third floor of the shopping center. The gallery runs until December 20, 2022.

Gratitude to Plovdiv Plaza Mall for kindly offering their space and promotion.

To promote the one-of-a-kind exhibition, they once again provided free of charge a 16-meter-high video LED screen, over 20 digital totems broadcasting information about the exhibition and a voice advertisement on the mall’s radio channel urging visitors to visit the exhibition.

Two days after the opening, a meditative concert with live music was held, where visitors immersed themselves in the musical art atmosphere.
